19 Juin 2017

Police said on Sunday the number of people assumed to have died in the London tower block fire was likely to rise from its previous 58, adding they would provide an updated figure on Monday.

'It's not true to say there are no councillors around, it's not true to say Kensington and Chelsea council is not evident. Police barred their way and scuffles broke out. "All of us in there gave our all and went above and beyond what we should have, but could not reach so, so many", he said.

The Department for Communities and Local Government has said that aluminium cladding with a polyethylene core should not be used on buildings taller than 18m.

"As we sit at the foot of Grenfell Tower, which has been described by some as a enormous tomb, we reflect on the many who have lost their lives, who have had them taken away so quickly, so horrendously and, as we now know, so needlessly". While failing to answer, she said the focus was now on providing support to the victims.

Police have said criminal prosecutors will be pursued if there is evidence of wrongdoing.

The exact number of missing people is still undetermined.

Clement's Church on Friday - one of several sites near the tower that offered clothes, food, and toiletries to victims and their loved ones - she was heckled with shouts of "Coward!"

But the identification of the victims appears to be proving very hard, which experts attribute to the extreme heat of the fire.

After a decade of economic austerity, characterised by ever deepening cuts to public services and welfare, rage at the circumstances leading to the fire has combined with popular discontent regarding the economic direction taken by the country in the recent past. "But I am not concerned at all about our flats they are completely safe".

Toronto Fire officials spoke out after the Grenfell Tower inferno to assure residents that protections in the Ontario Building Code and routine fire safety inspections will prevent a similar incident here.

"All I'm keen to say is there is an effective, co-ordinated relief effort on the ground and I'm sorry if people haven't seen that".

British Prime Minister Theresa May, facing criticism for the government's handling of the disaster, met Saturday with 15 fire survivors invited to her official residence at 10 Downing Street.

"She should have been there with the residents".

"The fact that they are not telling people is very frustrating".

In a statement, his family said he was a "very awesome and kind person".

Experts believe the building's cladding, which contained insulation, helped the flames spread quickly up the outside of the housing complex.

More than 66,000 people have called on the United Kingdom to grant the parents of a Syrian victim of the Grenfell Tower fire visas so they can attend his funeral, a report said on Saturday.

It has emerged that a group of concerned residents, the Grenfell Action Group, wrote in a blog post where they said a "catastrophe" was waiting to happen and complained about the "cheap materials and corner cutting" in the block's refurbishment. "Those people - I don't even know how they're sleeping right now".

However, May retracted the pledge on Saturday night, said that the residents would be found homes in the same borough or neighboring ones.

"They suspect it's a delaying tactic". He says trust in the authorities is "falling through the floor".

Locals were expected to stage a march in Kensington, while a rally to demand justice for the victims was planned in the government district of Westminster.
